dedicated to chocolate lovers)
The recipe is simple, requires no extra costs. Ideal for those, who doesn't want to waste a lot of time to make a cake.

Ingredients (tart diameter 22 cm):

For the base:
250 g. of flour.
100 g. of butter, chilled, cut into cubes.
100 g. of sugar.
4 egg yolks.
a pinch of salt, vanilla.
For the chocolate mousse:
300 g. of dark chocolate (50% cacao)
300 g. fresh cream (35% fat) very cold.
2 egg whites.
50 g. of caster sugar + 50 g. of sugar.
 Preparation:
 Dough: In a blender mix all ingredients except the egg yolks. Transfer to a cold bowl, pour in the egg yolks into the center, knead the dough with a hand. Work quickly so that the butter doesn't melt a lot. Form a ball, cover in a plastic wrap, let rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.

For the chocolate mousse: melt the chocolate, set aside, at this time beat whites, gradually adding in caster sugar (it usually takes about 4 minutes). Next, whip the cream with the sugar until a solid consistency. Try and adjust for sweetness. Now whisk gently chocolate with whites and cream until mousse acquires a uniform and velvety texture. Cover with foil, set aside in the refrigerator.

Preheat the oven (180 degrees). We get our dough, form a circle, using a rolling pin and transfer to the tart form. Pierce dough with a fork. Cover it with baking paper, pour some beans on it. Thus the dough does not rise during baking. Put it in the oven for 15 minutes. Take out, remove the baking paper from and the beans. You can beat one egg yolk and further lubricate tart. Then send to the oven for another 10 minutes. Let cool, fill with chocolate mousse, decorate the top. What your heart desires. I had a bit of whipped cream and grated hazelnuts.
Buon appetito!
